Zero Tolerance Policy

A number of our staff have recently experienced foul and abusive language or behaviour from a minority of patients. This is not acceptable and we will not tolerate this sort of behaviour towards our staff – all of whom continue to work tirelessly during this pandemic. In line with our zero tolerance policy, if you are found to be abusive towards members of staff then appropriate action will be taken

Please be aware that it is not a GP’s responsibility to issue school letters of absence for your children, regarding COVID-19 or other illness. Government guidance is that school attendance is mandatory unless your child is self-isolating, has symptoms of COVID-19, is close to someone who has COVID-19 or has received a letter advising them to shield.

Research   certificate               

We are a ‘Research active’ practice which means we take part in a wide range of studies. As of August 2019, LMP has been officially granted Research Ready accreditation to reflect our commitment to high quality research. Research helps to enhance knowledge on how to treat conditions, prevent illnesses and form the best care across society and within the NHS. Volunteering to get involved may mean filling in questionnaires, surveys, talking to one of the research team, or trialling a new treatment or drug.

Our base is at the University site, but we are active across all sites. We are a small team but growing, and want to get as many patients involved in research as possible.

A strict code of conduct is at the heart of all of our work to make sure data is always confidential.
